What are the benefits of joining a Climb Team?
Hiking The main benefit is that you no longer have to try and climb solo. When you join a Climb Team, you enter into a community of like-minded brothers in Christ who have your back whether you're failing or succeeding. You have a safe place to be completely real about who you are, what you've done, and what you're going through. You are accepted just the way you are, but also challenged to grow and become better. The team learns and grows together ... "As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another." - Proverbs 27:17
Will the conversation be topic driven or will we study God's Word together?
Hiking The main topic of our conversation during our weekly meetings is YOU! Climb Team Meetings are not a bible study, but we do begin each meeting with prayer and a short reading/encouragement from God's Word. The Bible guides everything that we are doing with Climb Teams. Each week Team Members answer specific check-in questions about their life and how their week went. They are also prayed for and given some words of guidance, support, and encouragement. The guys in the group are expected to read/study God's Word on their own. The team also works through Joe Dallas' book, The Game Plan, and talks about what they're learning. The team leader is there to answer any questions.
What if I'm already involved in a men's group?
Hiking If you’re already in a weekly men’s group that's asking you the hard questions about your personal purity ... keep contact with you throughout the week ... holding you accountable ... encouraging you ... praying for you ... and giving you solid biblical guidance ... then stick with it. You don't need a Climb Team because you already have one.
Why should I join a Climb Team if I already have Covenant Eyes?
Hiking Covenant Eyes is an awesome tool that we use and highly recommend, but it's doesn't provide everything you need to heal, grow, and succeed in life and relationships. Christian men need to be connected and climbing with other like-minded brothers. They need to be able to talk, listen, learn, pray, and support one another through the good, the bad, and the ugly. They desperately need weekly community, support, and accountability that is biblically based. This is what's holding back most Christian men from experiencing God's best.
Why does it cost money if this is a non-profit ministry?
Hiking It costs quite a bit of money to operate a non-profit ministry. We simply can't afford to do what we do for free. Your team leader puts a good amount of time and effort into preparing and leading the meetings, staying in contact with team members, and sending out helpful resources. There's also the cost of the sobriety carabiners, websites, zoom, etc.
You should view your membership as an investment in yourself, your marriage, your family, your ministry. $40 per month breaks down to just $10 per week. Most guys spend more than that on one lunch at Chick-fil-a or Chipotle. Like it or not, our spending often reveals what's most important to us.
We do offer financial assistance to eligible applicants.
